Full Time

Lead and develop the Engineering SHE system as well as providing compliance and project engineering management.

This is an excitingly wide and varied role, covering day-to-day Engineering, Health and Safety, Compliance and Project Engineering. Working for one of the most successful food manufacturing businesses in the UK, this particular site manufactures market leading foods for the major retailers. To join such a blue chip site would be an excellent addition to your CV!

The Engineering Manager's role will cover a range of areas, not least managing the successful implementation of projects including installations and Continuous Improvements. You will love problem-solving and be at your happiest when asked to analyse a situation and offer a solution.

Another aspect to this function is the Health and Safety responsibility. Covering a project carried out onsite or indeed just general maintenance, you owe it to your team and the rest of the employees to ensure that this will be done in a safe and hygienic manner. To enable this to be done properly the Engineering Manager will have up to date knowledge of Food Safety, specific site requirements and Health and Safety legislation.

This is an Engineering Manager position and as such, as well as managing all of the above aspects, there is also a team of Engineers relying on your support. You will have in-depth knowledge and skills that can be passed on and shared with the team to enhance the performance of plant and equipment. Alongside this will be the ability to develop cross-functional relationships with other departments to ensure that all work runs smoothly.

Knowledge of cost management, operational and engineering KPIs and experience of managing installation projects valued at £100k or more are all areas of experience that we would be looking for in your CV. A working knowledge of Microsoft project and CAD or equivalent 3D design programmes would also be good to be able to hit the ground running.
